Mooncakes and Pomegranites

With the last full moon the Lan Su Chinese Gardens had an evening fund-raiser.
There were about 15 restaurants in town serving small bite foods.
There was everything from mooncakes, cupcakes, spring rolls, and tea.
I just loved visiting the garden in the evening and thought the red of the tablecloths
and the blue lanterns made for a very festive evening.
We were able to wander the garden, take pictures, but most of all nibble at each table.
What fun to sample from so many restaurants and discover some new ones we
didn't know about.
There isn't much better than good food, nice music, warm cloudy evening,
and candle light.
I will miss those summer evenings, but looking forward to what is
coming with pumpkins and goblins to celebrate fall.

How fortunate you are to be so close to the Chinese Gardens. Looks like a fabulous event. Thanks for sharing!

My word verification is berthak ... I'm going to interpret that that my mother (bertha) is (ok)... she is content where she is!

I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Tea and Talk.' Your photos are so pretty, colorful, and full of life! Those pomegranites look delicious. While I was reading, I noticed that me and my daughters have a lot of the same interests as you. Nel loves to read too. She is reading about 15-20 books a week right now going towards her Ph.d. The girls love to travel, and we all like tea time. We have been taking time out each day for a cup of tea. We started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your wonderful photos. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
